2 sick horses rescued from New Hampshire home

CHICHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Two horses have been rescued from a farm in New Hampshire and are recovering from starvation.
Live and Let Live Farm Director Teresa Paradis tells the Concord Monitor that the two horses were rescued Monday from a home near Hollis where they were living in “sewer-like conditions.” The mare and stallion –both around 20 years of age — had been kept in a dirty barn behind the home. Paradis feared they wouldn’t have survived much longer if they hadn’t been rescued.
The owners, who were not named, handed over the horses voluntarily. No charges are expected.
In a separate case in May, two horses were rescued from a farm in Topsham, Vermont. They were also brought to Live and Let Live, a shelter that rescues abused and unwanted animals in Chichester.
